    Hello,

    I am a career changer, hoping to score a teaching position in either ESOL or MG Language Arts. I have already registered for the SAE exams for both of these as I understand that is the first step to transition into teaching. Ultimately though, I would like to receive a Masters Degree in either of these subject areas. Does anyone know of any districts that offer a Masters Degree as part of a transition to teaching program?

    Thanks,
    M

    Most districts will pay for continuing education classes, which a master's program would qualify for. I know the districts in my area (SWFL) reimburse you after the class is completed on a first come, first serve basis. With budget cuts in Florida, this could be harder to come by.

    I know of no school districts that will pay for your master's. My district will only reimburse for a certain number of courses and it's on first-come, first-serve but that is most likely getting cut due to budget cuts.
